2018 Toyota Prado facelift leaked - UPDATE

UPDATE, June 24: A series of clear new images have made their way online, again courtesy of Instagram user hamad1two3. We have added those images to throughout the body of this article, and you can find more in the gallery here. As before, it remains to be seen if these images are authentic, although the level of detail and the number of angles suggests they are genuine Toyota brochure or promotional images. Our thanks to readers Regreh, Leyton, and Simon!

2007-2012 Mitsubishi Outlander recalled for wiper fix: 46,000 vehicles affected

Mitsubishi has issued a recall for 46,263 examples of its previous-generation 2007 to 2012 model-year 'ZG' and 'ZH' Outlander SUVs over concerns the windscreen wipers could fail. The Japanese company reports that water could enter between the bonnet and windscreen, causing the front wiper link ball joint to corrode. If the condition occurs, the link could separate and cause the wipers to become inoperative. Loss of wiper function can reduce visibility and increase the risk of an accident.

2019 BMW 1 Series hits the Nurburgring

A prototype believed to be the next-generation 2019 BMW 1 Series has made its debut at the iconic Nurburgring race track this week. Compared to the vehicle spied in May, the 1 Series mule spied on track features a new front bumper with a radar sensor - likely for autonomous emergency braking (AEB) and radar cruise control systems - and different alloy wheels. The rest of its disguise remains largely the same.

Importing Camry rather than producing locally won't dent image, company suggests

The fact that the new 2018 Toyota Camry will be imported from Japan rather than built in Australia like the outgoing model should not have a great impact on sales, which nevertheless are expected to decline in response to the car’s push upmarket. The 2018 Toyota Camry - generation number eight - is a new-from-the-ground-up model with different architecture and fully revised designs outside and in.
